The Council for a Livable World promotes policies to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons and to minimize the risk of war through lobbying and by helping elect and support Members of Congress who share our goals.

Candidate Fund

Our members can contribute to the Council’s Candidate Fund, a political action committee that raised more than $1.4 million for candidates running in 2016. Since 1962, we’ve helped to elect more than 350 members of Congress who are supportive of progressive national security and foreign policy positions, including arms control.

Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation

Our affiliated research and education organization is the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(3) organization. It is a national non-partisan, non-profit dedicated to enhancing peace and security through expert policy analysis and thought-provoking research. Since 1980, the Center’s expertise on reducing the threats of war and nuclear weapons has been sought by the media and policymakers–and supported by the tax-deductible contributions of foundations and individuals.

Together, the Council and the Center engage in hard-hitting, fact-based analysis and advocacy for a more livable world. Go to to visit the website for the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.
